Hemmings Sunday Cinema – A turbine comes to Indy

Published in blog.hemmings.com

While the story of Andy Granatelli’s STP turbine car entry at the 1967 Indianapolis 500 should be familiar territory for readers of the Hemmings Daily, nothing beats actually hearing the whoosh of the turbine and seeing the car at speed with Parnelli Jones at the wheel. So this Memorial Day weekend, in between barbecues and Musclepalooza, take some time to watch it in action and listen to the first-hand accounts from Jones, Granatelli, and their competition.

And while we’re at it, it’s worth checking out how Granatelli made use of the car as a promotional item.
